Background Checks — Minneapolis Public Schools now require all parent volunteers going on school field trips to submit a Criminal Background Check form.  This background check is good for two years from the date it was approved — so if you submitted one last year, you should be fine for this year. Classroom teachers have been given the master list and will be informed as soon as new parents are approved. You can check with your classroom teacher or family liaison Lori Smith at lori.smith@mpls.k12.mn.us to see when/if you will need to submit a new form. It can take 5-10 days to process these forms.
